""There’s so many emotions that get touched in a moment like this because you reflect back on moments of other concert events where many of the people involved here in this concert have touched your life in some way. And all the emotions that were very real and alive then are just as real and alive today—and so it has been a wonderful experience."
Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the youngest of seven children, Dony was raised in a talented musical family. At sixteen, Dony left home to pursue a full-time career in Gospel music. Reba’s roots can also be traced back to a family of ministry and music. Born to Gospel music legends, Buck & Dottie Rambo, Reba’s earliest memories were of a house filled with music and traveling with The Rambos from storefront churches to the largest concert stages of the world. It was in 1980 that these two outstanding careers were united when Dony and Reba joined their lives and music together in marriage. Having received recognition as recording artists, writers, and producers for many of their compositions, the highlight of their career was receiving the 1981 Grammy Award for “Best Contemporary Gospel Album” for their musical “The Lord’s Prayer,” which they performed at the 1982 Grammy Awards. In 1983, Dony and Reba broke from the concert hall circuit and began ministering primarily in churches around the world. They realized the need for the local church as a source of spiritual strength and felt compelled to minister to the wounded body of Christ.
